The Yamaha/Honda power steering war seems to have cooled somewhat after Honda announced it was the first to bring Electronic Power Steering to the market while Yamaha was simultaneously pulling the sheets off the 2007 Grizzly at a PR event.
However, Honda has announced it has a new 2007 model with Electronic Power Steering and will formally intro this 450-500 class ATV shortly. What is not clear is whether Honda will include a locking differential on this and other models.
Seems sort-of futile to add power steering and not include diff-lock. That’s where Yamaha’s EPS really shines.
